Overview
"A comprehensive account of the legendary 1978 heist . . . impressive."
--Publishers Weekly

The crime that inspired the movie Goodfellas.
The rest of story that couldn't be told--until now.

One of the biggest scores in Mafia history, the Lufthansa Airlines heist of 1978 has become the stuff of Mafia legend--and a decades-long investigation that continues to this day. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Anthony DeStefano sheds new light on this legendary unsolved case using recent evidence from the 2015 trial of eighty-year-old mafioso Vincent Asaro, who for the first time speaks out on his role in the fateful Lufthansa heist. This blistering you-are-there account takes you behind the headlines and inside the ranks of America's infamous Mafia families--with never-before-told stories, late-breaking news, and bombshell revelations:

"DeStefano is a master at cutting through the secrecy of the Mafia hierarchy."
--Publishers Weekly

"The best and last word on the subject . . . DeStefano brings the story to life."
--Jerry Capeci, creator of GangLandNews.com
